This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, an obituary of the artist, is submitted by Andy Galt, Dover, New Hampshire. The source is the website of New Hampshire newspaper, "The York Weekly", 10/11/2003.

Frances Belle Ehrig, 90, formerly of Ogunquit, died Sunday, Jan. 12, 2003, at the Riverside Rest Home, after a brief illness.

Born on April 16, 1912, in Somersworth, N.H., she was the daughter of Charles and Grace (Adams) Sanborn.

She attended Somersworth schools, and graduated in 1961 from the New Hampshire Technical Institute with her LPN degree. She went on to serve as a nurse at the Wentworth-Douglass Hospital in Dover, N.H., for more than 20 years.

She was a member of the American Pen Women, the Ogunquit Women's Club, and
St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Cape Neddick.

She began taking art courses at the University of New Hampshire. It was at this time that she discovered her passion for painting and illustrating. She studied under William C. Ehrig, the renowned seascape painter, whom she would later marry. Together they ran the William C. Ehrig gallery from their home on Shore Road in Ogunquit.

For many years she spent winters in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where she worked as a private nurse.

She continued to paint and teach from her Ogunquit studio well into her 80s. Her paintings reflect her love of the sea, the rugged coastline of Maine, and the subtle variations of light through the passing seasons.

She was predeceased by her husband (William Columbus Ehrig), who died in
